The easiest way to bring hybrid versatility to your acoustic drums.
Battery powered and small in size, the TM-2 Trigger Module provides a simple solution for enhancing acoustic drums with the creative versatility of electronic percussion. Two trigger inputs support a wide variety of pads and drum triggers from Roland, while the ready-to-play pro sounds are optimized for augmenting live acoustic drums and extending the percussion capabilities of any drum set. Studio-quality multi-effects are on tap to process your kits, and you can even trigger your own custom WAV sounds, loops, and backing tracks via an SDHC card. By combining the TM-2 with products such as Roland’s BT-1 Bar Trigger Pad, KT-10 Kick Trigger Pedal, or RT-series acoustic drum triggers, it’s never been easier or more affordable to create a powerful hybrid drum kit that blends acoustic and electronic elements together.

Comments about Roland TM-2 Drum Trigger Module:
The Roland TM-2 is great! I had been looking for a drum module/drum brain that would integrate with an acoustic drum set for a while, and finally found this one. It is not as expensive or has all the bells and whistles as some other drum brains, but is just what I need. Lots of sounds, the ability to upload your own sounds, and it just works great. The Roland triggers work well with it too, especially since they have built in settings for you to tweak to fix any problems of latency, retriggering, etc. I don't have any problems with triggering or pads. For the price, you can't beat this system. I use it every time I drum for cowbells, chimes, claps, etc. - anything I need that is just not present in my acoustic set. And it blends perfectly. Only con is that you only have 2 inputs (well, 4 if you use a stereo to mono splitter as Roland suggests). However, it should be noted that if you use a splitter to get 4 inputs instead of just 2, the dual triggering does not work. For instance, with 2 inputs, you can hit them at the same time, and both sounds will be recreated. But any channel that has 2 inputs, only one of the sounds will be made if you hit them both at the same time (for instance, if you use the splitter or use the Roland snare trigger that triggers through the head and rim, you can hit the head and rim at the same time, but only 1 sound will come out, whichever is hit first; thus, you can't do any flams or simultaneous hits). I don't find this to be too much of a problem though, and can move the sounds around to get what I need. If you just need some aux percussion added to your set, or want to trigger some sounds here and there, this drum brain and it's triggers will definitely take it to the next level. I love mine, would buy it again, and would definitely recommend to a friend.
